The Lyrics

(instrumental intro)

Falwell's a nut who's on the stage.
Clinton from Little Rock puts him in a rage.
Bush and Cheney bought his act.
On Robertson's show, displayed a lack of tact.

The Far Right... made Bush the King.
Crackpot extremists who make your ears ring.
Back to the 80's - it's Bush Lite.
As long as Shrub can fake it, who controls the Right?

American Taliban!
American Taliban!
Falwell's the right wing clown
Who said "God's wrath brought us down."
American Taliban!

(instrumental break)

Falwell had shown us how low he'd go.
Attacks on our land; a true horror show.
Said, "We're no good; earned God's spite for not living right."
His thinking's defective; Falwell's full of spite.

Does he have rabies? What drives this man?
Here's how we should treat such noise from his brand...
Tell them: "You're all kooks! You should get lost!"
Go help defeat them, and help oust Bush the Clown.

American Taliban!
American Taliban!
Falwell's the right wing clown
Who said, "God's wrath brought us down."
American Taliban!

American Taliban!
American Taliban!
Falwell's the right wing clown
Who said, "God's wrath brought us down."
American Taliban!

(lead guitar solo)

American Taliban!
American Taliban!
Falwell's the right wing clown
Who said, "God's wrath brought us down."
American Taliban!

American Taliban!
American Taliban!
Falwell's the right wing clown
Who said, "God's wrath brought us down."
American Taliban!

American Taliban... kooks!
American Taliban... kooks!
American Taliban... kooks!

(instrumental ending)
